Facilitated and led by leadership consultant and coach Diane M. Millis, this interfaith reading group utilizes her recent book, Deepening Engagement, as a springboard to enter into deep relationships across lines of religious difference. The book offers a toolkit for leaders of all kinds and all levels of spiritual involvement—people of faith, people of no faith, spiritual but not religious—for deepening our engagement with our true selves, one another and the communities in which we live and work. Each chapter provides guiding precepts from many wisdom traditions to help us realize what we most value and identify where we find passion and purpose. As a result, we will be better able to inspire others in all that we do. Intriguing and challenging, this thought-provoking resource is ideal for use in an interfaith small reading group interested in tapping into their own leadership potential in an increasingly religiously plural world. This group is open to all regardless of religious affiliation or lack thereof and fulfills the Jay Phillip Center's mission to promote interreligious friendship.
